government was elected three months ago, a government forcing through yet another round of punishing spending cuts. in a country where one in four are already unemployed, perhaps one shouldn't be surprised the public anger at times tips over into violence. the morning had seen tens of thousands march on parliament demanding the government change course. they know it's hopeless, of course, their leaders are deep in negotiations with europe and the i.m.f. about cutting wages and pensions by anything up to 30%. and this in a city where already one in three businesses has closed. >> we have to do something for our future to have a regular job, to have a family. >> all of europe should have a voice against these policies. >> reporter: there will be little reassurance of promises of no more cuts after these. >> there is no scope for any further reductions in wages and pensions beyond this specific package. this is a commitment that the government has made. >> reporter: the greeks have been told that before. >> yes, they have been told that before. but should the government not meet that commitment,

, to pave the way for a genetic change in the size and structure of the federal government. so i think yeah, you'll have linda lingle in hawaii who said she doesn't want to get rid of the affordable care act. that is going to become something. i think it is that a lot of progressives are hoping for. what it means however is that democrats might actually experienced losses while the progressive goal is proving durable might be achieved. >> great, fantastic discussion. let's turn it over to the audience here. read in the front row. >> hi, my name is tomball, owner illustrators magazine do with urban notch partners, a lot of shift. each acrobat deals with coverage. per the 2010 census and if you actually extrapolate the data to what their project and now, you're kind of looking not 38% to 62% as far as weight minorities to minority split non-hispanic white and then you add about 120 million minorities so is there any data you have that she was speaking about, even if it was 28%, you're still tracking 10% last than the actual population composition in america. so do you have data that shows how
in the federal government. a senior official in the federal government spending millions of dollars of taxpayers money and you're a mistake, was ticket. i would say, lookat all 3 of us, decide who you think will do job, pick that person in november, because believe me, said before, the party is over f clean-up crew. we do o have change and people that don't take responsibility for anything when it happens on their watch and people in charge time. >> time is u more later. >> governor clinton, you have one minute. >> ross gave a good answer, but i havrespond to mr. bush. you have questioned my patriotism. you even brought some right wing person to attack me how ing to russia when over 60,000 americans did. i honored your service world war ii and mr. rot's honoring in the military. but, when joe mccarthy went around this country attacking people'spawas wro. he was wrong. the sen tore from connecticut stood up to him. you were wrong to attack my patriotism. i was opposed to the war and i love my country. we need a country to bring this country together. i want to lead a unified untry. >> all right.
between them more than any of us. so what is the government doing? after 2014, where there is a new kind of american focus on the region, and i would like to think if all goes as well as i hope it will, it will be somewhat more focused on maintaining the peace in pakistan and investing in pakistan's long-term future and society a little bit more than in its politics. similarly, to expect pakistan will be altered is not realistic. i do not think we can apply it we can make pakistan into switzerland and a few years as -- in a few years by fixing them up. i do not think that will happen. nor would it be right for us to think that is a worthy goal. we should see if we can do what we can to help the efforts to internationalize pakistan. it is an inward-looking country. this bilateral narrative and focus. sadly, when you talk to pakistanis and they talk about seeing the tail lights of south korea, turkey, and bangladesh, seeing them ahead of them. koreans sent teams to pakistan in the 1960's find out what pakistan had done right. the ambassador of thechinese introduced them to one of these pro
the health- care system overnight, but one thing we can do is not rely on the government or the insurance companies. we can make this system more transparent so that you do not have to walk in blind when you choose your health care. if patients are increasingly frustrated with the problems of health care, know that a recent mayo study found that 46 percent of doctors feel they are burnt out. there is frustration on both sides. we have to face an important question now as a society. are we going to believe as a groups that patients have our right to know about the quality of their hospitals? for the first time, this information is being collected. if it brought there for the public more completely, if they could make -- if it was out there for the public more completely, they could make more informed decisions. host: yvonne and maryland accurate -- yvonne in maryland. caller: i have a question for you. i have a family member that is at a local hospital. they went in for a potassium replacement. i thought they would get it in the emergency room and just be there for one or two days. now the

from government by way of many programs. we are spending now 37% more on food for the hungry in all the various types of programs than was spent in 1980. we're spending a third more on all of the -- well, all of the programs of human service. we have more people receiving food stamps than were ever receiving them before -- 2,300,000 more are receiving them -- even though we took 850,000 off the food stamp rolls because they were making an income that was above anything that warranted their fellow citizens having to support them. we found people making 185% of the poverty level were getting government benefits. we have set a line at 130% so that we can direct that aid down to the truly needy. some time ago, mr. mondale said something about education and college students and help of that kind. half -- one out of two of the full-time college students in the united states are receiving some form of federal aid. but there, again, we found people that there under the previous administration, families that had no limit to income were still eligible for low-interest college loans. we didn't
the other side have total control of the government. total control of the government? think about that for a second. mitch mcconnell is talking about democrats controlling the senate and the white house and democrats controlling the house. i mean, few people other than nancy pelosi and other house democrats are talking about the democrats conceivably taking control of the house. but mitch mcconnell seems to think that's a possibility. as the republican leader in the senate, mitch mcconnell is most concerned with senate seats and that's what he's backstopping here when pitching to donors. but the pitch he's making to republican donors is amazing. he's pitching that republicans need to work hard and collect your hard-earned money to hold on to seats in the senate because the republicans will yihat eyl se ienta 'se it goes without saying for these guys now. this is the gurech odse i the country. anisch is mitt romney is going to lose. you need us so democrats don't control everything. everybody has been waiting to find out if mitt romney looks like such a losing prospect that republi
will show up to govern the white house. but those doubts all but evaporated, and i quote . . . here to discuss who is really eric bates, executive editor of "rollingstone" magazine. thanks for joining us. >> thank for having me. >> eliot: mitt romney did in fact -- the morph that destroyed him from moderate sensible creatable intellect to far-right stooge, how did he done that. >> we decided he would go to the far right, pose as a severe conservative, and then somehow magically shake the etch-a-sketch and come back to center. >> eliot: if he had been smarter and more nimble he would have said you know i'm going to etch-a-sketch, but he stuck to the far right and showed himself at the end of the day to approximate completely spineless. >> all along people have been saying who is the real mitt romney? how will we know what he really stands for? and i think the moment that was cemented into place was when he picked paul ryan. there was a lot of argument for him to pick centerist like pall leapty. and then gofer nor quest said this choice outlines the future for the
was a school cook. my father created his own business. hard work. government didn't help. but he had certain principles that he lived by, important principles. specifically, if you worked hard every day, if you worked hard every day, you'd get an opportunity to succeed. not a guarantee, but an opportunity. he also believed that if you played by the rules, you'd be rewarded, and if you didn't, there would be consequences. it's amazing how much in this country has changed in the last four years. and the result, the results of this change that what my father went through isn't true today, it's amazing what the impact has had on our government, our economy and on jobs. >> moderator: our first question comes from brent boynton. >> >> you both have a pretty consistent record of voting along party lines, and we've certainly seen more than our fair share of negative commercials during this campaign. many nevada cans and americans as a whole have grown tired of the youing polarity in between -- the growing polarity in between the political parties and ideologies. are you willing to compromise party i
a number of people living off the government. you know, my wife and i have given so much back to the st. louis city schools at roosevelt high school, for the past six years we've been knee-deep in the problem center city. and by the way, we 50,000 kids now with normandie going the other way and not accredited schools, 50,000. philip busch stadium standing room only. we need more people employed in the state. we need more opportunity, we need more dreams to be fulfilled and we are simply languishing at the bottom of the barrel almost every economic category. you know, a lot of education is leadership and it starts at the top. i think there's well-intentioned people. were starting to show signs of progress and it was. we been in there. we've been in the trenches. for six years we've been trying to find a solution to the problems. kansas city, we can help getting it going from the ideas we have. there is racial disparity that comes to economic opportunity and jobs. in the best gift we give somebody as a career. >> jim higgins. >> okay, well one of the most inefficient things you can do wit
they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it, it's an entitlement and the government should give it to them and they will vote for this president no matter what. >> a new poll finds 54% of all voters have an unfavorable view of romney's comments and 57% of independents feel the same way. that's a big reason why romney is in so much trouble in ohio and no republican has ever won the white house without winning the state. but when asked about how losing ohio would affect the electoral map, romney's campaign response said, i prefer to look at the map hol lift clee. he wants to look at the map holistically? how about realistically? president obama is trying to seal the deal. >> values are hard work and personal responsibility, those values that we believe in don't just belong to workers or businesses or the rich or the poor, the 53% or the 47%, the 1% or the 99%. those are american values. and if you're with me and if you work with me, we'll win what county again. we'll win ohio again. we'll finish what we started. we'll remind the world why the united states of america is the g
the people. this is the way the framers of the constitution intended our government to be, a government that comes from the people. over time we have developed a government that comes at the people, that comes from the top down, where the people are more or less treated as objects to be programmed during the campaign with commercials and media events and fear messages and personal attacks and things of that nature. the thing that separates my candidacy and makes it unique is that this came from millions of people in 50 states all over this country who wanted a candidate that worked and belonged to nobody but them. i go into this race as their servant, and i belong to them. so this comes from the people. >> governor clinton, a one minute response. >> the most important distinction in this campaign is that i represent real hope for change, a departure from trickle-down economics, a departure from tax and spend economics, to invest in growth. but before i can do that, i must challenge the american people to change, and they must decide. tonight i say to the president: mr. bush, for 12 year
are dependent on government very much -- >> reporter: but for romney when it rains it pours. his two-day under steady showers has a feel of a race against time. a new poll quinnipiac finds romney trailing the president by ten points in ohio, nine points in florida and 12 in pennsylvania. an abc "the washington post" poll may explain why. 54% said they had an unfavorable view of romney's comments on voters who don't pay taxes. romney told cnn he's not worried about the numbers. >> we're taking our message to the people of ohio and across the country. and polls go up and down. but frankly you're going to see the support that i need to become president on election day. >> reporter: but he's facing some strong economic headwinds in ohio where the governor, john casic, touted his state's recovery at a romney event. >> i hope you all know ohio's coming back from 48th in job creation to number four. number one in the midwest. >> reporter: joined by gulf legend and ohio native jack nicholas, romney said the president shouldn't get a mulligan or do-over. >> now there's over $16 trillion in debt. if he
values? spell them out. >> using government as a communal progressive force to protect the safety net and to come together and invest in innovation, education, infrastructure. we're in it together. versus the ryan budget, which used as a stand-in first republican nominee, which says we're on it alone, get rid of government and give you a voucher, find medicare on your own. here comes romney and he sort of fits the mold. he's a 1 percenter. he shows no empathy, even before the 47%. >> a pure market guy. >> they use bain, from the beginning, as cynthia noted, as a value. he's out there making money. i'm thinking of wider ames and goals. >> a new bloomberg goal that has president obama leading mitt romney by six points nationally. for one big reason, half of the polls say they have an unfavorable view of mitt romney. bloomberg reports, this is a september high for a presidential challenger in the last three decades. bloomberg quotes a 40-year-old insurance agent from virginia, self-described libertarian on why she's going to vote for obama. now, this isn't cheerleading for obama by any m
it on, let's have a big debate about the philosophy of government. down in florida they don't care about the philosophy. >> all politics is local. >> they want the program, they like the program, don't mess with the program. >> let's go to something really big because i like this guy so much. this is jim webb who is retiring as the senator from virginia. he's a democrat but a different kind of democrat. many people, including me, believe he's eviscerated romney with these words he spoke. remember what romney was saying, there's the takers and the makers out there, including among the takers, unfortunately for mr. romney, are those people who served us in uniform, may have been dismembered in some cases, spent the rest of their lives dealing with the injuries and wounds they suffered for the country, and they don't consider themselves takers exactly. let's listen to jim webb defend them. >> governor romney and i are right about the same age, young guys. like millions in the our generation, we came to adulthood facing the harsh realities of the vietnam war. 2.7 million in our age group wen
